Aaron Klein Anonymous Source Watch
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A Jan. 12 WorldNetDaily article by Aaron Klein, which accuses the Obama administration of "selling out Lebanon," is completely devoid of named sources. Klein attributes this claim to "top Christian leaders in Lebanon" who "spoke on the condition their names be withheld," but he did not explain why they requested anonymity or why he granted it (aside from the obvious -- that they give him cover to bash Obama).

Klein has a long history of hiding behind anonymous sources to attack President Obama and his administration, and his history of faulty and slanted reporting should not give readers any confidence that his grants of anonymity can be trusted.
